Questions about General Dentistry

Why do I need to visit every six months if I don’t have any problems?
Preventive care is less expensive than repairing damage. Certain problems, like gum disease and early signs of decay, offer few warning signs. Regular visits allow us to monitor your oral health and catch any issues early on.

How is a filling different from a crown?
Made from composite resin, tooth-colored fillings replace decay that only impacts a portion of the tooth. With severe damage, your will likely need a dental crown, which fits securely over the remaining tooth structure and completely covers the tooth.

I have metal fillings. Should I replace them?
At one time, amalgam fillings were the standard for restoring teeth. Now, most dentists prefer composite fillings. These fillings match your natural tooth color, won’t leak over time and don’t contain any metal. If your old fillings aren’t causing you problems, you can choose to leave them in place, but if you want more aesthetic restorations, talk with your doctor about composite fillings as a replacement option.
